The Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute workshops are produced by the Blackstone LaunchPad at UT with support from the College of Fine Arts to further our shared mission of empowering all students — especially women — to recognize the leaders and entrepreneurs that lie within.

Our first workshop is on personal branding and how to effectively communicate your unique values, skills and strengths to position yourself as a leader in work and in life. Female mentors from Kendra Scott and Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network will be present to connect with students and talk about their career journeys and backgrounds. Representatives from UT career services teams will also be present.

There will be two speaker panels with accomplished female leaders and entrepreneurs to share their stories and insights on personal branding:

Panel One

4:45-5:15 p.m.

Kendra Scott, Designer, CEO & Philanthropist
Liz Matthews, Senior Vice President Global Brand and Experiential at Dell Technologies

During the workshop, boost your personal brand by visiting a makeup booth and skincare station, pick up customized planners and calendars, and learn about social media strategies. Free headshots will be available for the first 75 attendees.
